Not willingly, no :-p

This is a pretty complex problem, as SQL itself isn't particularly well-equipped to deal
with fuzzy data. One approach that might work is using a fulltext indexing engine
(MySQL's built-in ft indices, or an external one like Solr or something) and doing
best-fit matches on the keywords of the title you're looking for.
